The Founding Fathers held their initial meetings in a neighborhood tavern, which explains why the Declaration of Independence’s first draft had a long, rambling subsection devoted to how powdered wigs are a natural icebreaker.

As the jukebox pounds and twangs with the sounds of rock ‘n’ roll and Johnny Cash, the alcohol alchemists of Johnny’s Saloon pour from a pantheon of more than 100 whiskeys. Tasters receive five 1.25-ounce pours from their choice of bottles, served alongside a soda back that cleanses the palate and, if raised to the ear, calms the mind with the sound of a carbonated ocean. With the normal tasting, patrons can choose any whiskey up to $10 in value, including such standbys as Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey, Baker’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon, and Sam Houston American Straight Whiskey. Premium selections include any glass up to $18, which ropes in Jameson 18-Year Irish Whiskey, Macallan, Booker’s True Barrel Bourbon, or any of the nonpremium choices mixed and poured from the sound hole of a vintage Gibson.

Johnny’s Saloon

More than 100 whiskeys and a comparable bounty of beers flow at Johnny’s Saloon, an eccentric neighborhood bar that dubs itself a “twisted Cheers.” Opened in 1982, the bar emanates a charm stemming from its appreciation of the rock 'n' roll generation and a rejection of anything that represents the status quo, such as walls. The jukebox is stocked solely with vintage rock 'n' roll and country, steering clear of Top 40 pop and hip-hop, and in the spotless bathrooms, 20 scented lotions keep hands smelling fresher than the Snuggle bear’s dance moves. Though the bar doesn’t serve food, the staffers happily order in from the nearby famous Donuttery and pour libations from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. They serve up single shots of spirits such as Midleton Irish whiskey and Macallan 21-year, but patrons can also purchase a private bottle of liquor that’s held behind the bar under lock and key.
